Each person has his or her own reasons for travelling by private jet. For some, comfort is the main criterion, while others prefer the practicality provided by a private flight.

 

Some private jets are to be preferred to meet specific needs such as short runways. Furthermore, the distance of the trip as well as the number of suitcases to be transported will play a key role in your choice of private jet.

Each of them has different advantages. Therefore, each private jet model will be adapted to your needs.

 

Whether you are a regular user, or a new traveller, there is a private jet model for every type of trip! Our aviation experts will try to enlighten you on how to choose the right private jet. This choice will allow you to travel in the ideal business jet that best suits your needs and desires.

What questions to ask yourself when choosing your private jet

What are your first questions when you are about to rent a private jet?

How far is your journey? Is it short or long haul? What is the number of passengers on board?  Do you have luggage? Is it bulky (ski or golf club)? Is it the price or the comfort that you would like to favour? Would you like a hostess on board?

 

Turbo-propellers

Turboprop aircraft are aircraft with a propeller engine. They allow you to travel within a range of 1000 km to 2500 km. They are slower than conventional private jets but are more economical. In addition, these aircraft are also noisier. These propeller planes are more agile than others. Thanks to this manoeuvrability, they can land on runways with different surfaces. Finally, they can also land on short runways, as is the case in Courchevel.  This means they can also land at a greater number of airports than other types of aircraft.

These planes can generally accommodate a larger quantity of luggage than classic private jets. Finally, turboprops are the ideal solution for short, economical journeys.

Light private jets

Light jets are faster and have more autonomy than turboprops. They are also more comfortable and less noisy. In addition, they also allow access to many airports with short runways. With a light private jet, you can count on a range of between 1500 and 3200 kilometres from the departure airport. They are also faster than an airliner.

They are therefore ideal aircraft if you want to make a European business trip. They will take you comfortably to your final destination. They are also faster than an airliner.

Medium-haul private jets

The greatest asset of these mid-size private jets is compromise. They will take you farther, faster and with more people than light private jets. You can fly up to 4000 km from your starting point with these unique aircraft. In addition, the comfort on board is increased due to the longer flight times. Finally, these mid-size private jets have larger cargo holds. This makes them perfect for weekend trips with equipment (golf hunting, skiing, etc.).

In particular, it is possible to stand upright in the cabin. On board these prestigious aircraft, you don’t just travel. You are living an experience.

Cargo planes

Apart from travelling, it is possible to charter a plane for other services. It is possible, among other things, to charter a cargo plane that will be available to transport goods. Air freight transport is certainly more expensive than sea freight. But on the other hand, the aeroplane offers proximity and speed. All goods are assignable. From a private collection for an art gallery to large quantities of masks during the COVID crisis19.

Medical evacuation or EVASAN

Private aircraft are also among the most efficient and suitable aircraft for these live evacuations. They are less well known for this specificity. However, many aircraft can be adapted for medical transport. In order to carry out these special flights, the aircraft must be stable. The jet must also be able to accommodate a doctor, oxygen and stretcher on board.
